Sofia. In the course of our investigative actions, we have found a memo written in Russian by Nikolay Malinov on the need for geopolitical reorientation of Bulgaria, and information on the so-called Project Bulgaria, Chairman of the State Agency for National Security (SANS) Dimitar Georgiev said during a hearing in Parliament over the ongoing Russian spy scandal, Focus News Agency reported.
"I will briefly present the information about a case involving a crime against the Republic, namely, the placement of a Bulgarian citizen at the service of foreign organisations. As you already know, the Bulgarian citizen in question is Nikolay Malinov, Chair of the Russophiles National Movement,” Georgiev said. During SANS’ investigation into crimes against the country's financial and credit system, a money laundering scheme has been dismantled, he said. The investigators found that the scheme was also used for transferring funds from a Russian citizen, the head of the Double-Headed Eagle Society, interested in Bulgaria’s social and political life. According to the data, activities directly affecting the national security were funded, Georgiev said, adding that the two organisations have publicly declared that they were waging a hybrid war against the West.

Sofia. GERB Parliamentary Group has requested a hearing of the Chairman of the State Agency on National Security (SANS), Dimitar Georgiev, and Interior Minister Mladen Marinov over the ongoing Russian spy scandal, Focus News Agency reported.
"I make a procedural proposal that the chairman of SANS and the minister of interior be heard in Parliament in reference to yesterday's press briefing of the prosecutor's office," said GERB Group Chair Dr Daniela Daritkova, adding that the motion was tabled because of the great public interest in the events surrounding the spy scandal.
The opposition Bulgarian Socialist Party, for its part, agreed with the proposal but demanded that the prime minister should appear in Parliament, as well, as he is responsible for Bulgaria's national security. The session could be hold behind closed doors given the sensitivity of the matter, the socialists proposed.
